No Other Gods (A Poem)


“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
-Exodus 20:3

When hobbies turn to idols
When passions turn to gods
What’s gone wrong in the system?
What paradigm is flawed?

There’s no inherent evil (in the)
Things that I pursue
But when obsession overtakes
Priorities get skewed

Stay vigilant, be careful
There’s poison by degrees
The subtlest seduction (leads to)
Hell so carefully

The Lord has promised this:
(and I know the words are true)
Seek Him first, then all else will be
Added unto you
